How do I know if my motherboard supports liquid cooling?

I am getting an ASRock AB350M Pro4 AM4 and am planning on using the Thermaltake Water 3.0 Riing. My motherboard specs says that the CPU fan header can supply a max of 12 watts (1a12v)

How do I know how power hungry thr TT Water Riing is? How many watts does it usually take to run a water cooler?
Also, on a water cooler, do i have to plug the fans in seperately to the motherboard through PWM or are they all connected to one wire?

    The pump plugs into the CPU header, the pump is 175mA

    The 3 fans plug into the control box which it comes with, and that control box plugs into one of the motherboard system fan headers.
